FCC/IC NOTICE
HD Camcorder, VIXIA mini systems
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1) This device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any
interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
Note: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can
radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and use in accordance with the instructions, may
cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to
radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the
user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

Use of shielded cable is required to comply with class B limits in Subpart B of Part 15 of FCC Rules.
Do not make any changes or modifications to the equipment unless otherwise specified in the manual. If such changes or modifications should be made, you could be required to stop operation of
the equipment.
Model ID0032 (including WLAN Module Model RF401, FCC ID: AZD401)
This device complies with Industry Canada license-exempt RSS standard(s). Operation is subject to
the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause interference, and (2) this device must
accept any interference, including interference that may cause undesired operation of the device.

This transmitter must not be co-located or operated in conjunction with any other antenna or transmitter.
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are associated with using
low-power wireless devices. There is no proof, however, that these low power wireless devices are
absolutely safe. Low-power wireless devices emit low levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in the
microwave range while being used. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue), exposure to low-level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no known
adverse health effects. Many studies of low-level RF exposures have not found any biological
effects. Some studies have suggested that some biological effects might occur, but such findings
have not been confirmed by additional research. This model has been tested and found to comply
with FCC/IC radiation exposure limits set forth for an uncontrolled equipment and meets the FCC
radio frequency (RF) Exposure Guidelines in Supplement C to OET65 and RSS-102 of the IC radio
frequency (RF) Exposure rules.

pixels operating to specification. Less than 0.01% of the
pixels may occasionally misfire or appear as black, red,
blue or green dots. This has no effect on the recorded
image and does not constitute a malfunction.
• For details about how to take care of the touch screen,
refer to Handling Precautions (A 226), Cleaning
(A 232).

[File Numbering]: Movies and photos are saved on the memory
card as files in folders, which are assigned consecutive file numbers. This setting determines how files are numbered.
[m Reset]: File numbers will restart from 100-0001 every time
you record on a memory card that has been initialized.
[n Continuous]: File numbers will continue from the number
following that of the last file recorded with the camcorder.
• If the memory card you insert already contains a file with a
larger number, a new file will be assigned a number one higher
than that of the last file on the memory card.

Appendix: Menu Options Lists
• We recommend using the [n Continuous] setting.
• Folders can contain up to 500 files (movies and photos combined).
• File numbers consist of 7 digits, for example “101-0107”. The
3 digits before the hyphen indicate the folder where the file is
saved and can range from 100 to 999. The 4 digits after the
hyphen are a unique identifier for each file and can range from
0001 to 9900.
• The last four digits of the folder name indicate the date when
the folder was created.
• The file number and folder name also indicate the location of
the file on the memory card. A recording with the file number
“101-0107”, made on 3 November will be found in the folder
DCIM\101_1103. If it is a movie, its file name will be
MVI_0107.MP4; if it is a photo, its file name will be
IMG_0107.JPG.
• All the interval scenes recorded during one interval recording
sequence are saved in separate folders indicated by the letter
“I” instead of an underscore (ex. “101I0501”).

Do’s and Don’ts
Do’s and Don’ts
Handling Precautions
Camcorder
Be sure to observe the following precautions to ensure maximum performance.
• Save your recordings periodically. Make sure to transfer
your recordings to an external device, such as a computer
(A 131), and save them on a regular basis. This will protect
your important recordings in case of damage and create more
free space on the memory card. Canon shall not be liable for
any data loss.
• Do not carry the camcorder by the LCD panel. Be careful
when closing the LCD panel.
• Handle the touch screen with care. Do not apply excessive
force and do not use ballpoint pens or other hard-tipped tools
to operate the touch screen. This may damage the touch
screen’s surface.
• Do not allow contact with metallic objects. If metallic objects
come in contact with the touch screen, this may inadvertently
cause incorrect operation of the camcorder.
• Do not hold the camcorder in the same posture for long periods of times as this may cause low-temperature contact
burns. Even if the camcorder does not feel too hot, prolonged
contact with the same body part may cause skin redness or

blistering. The use of a tripod is recommended for people with
circulation problems or very sensitive skin, or when using the
camcorder in very hot places.
Do not leave the camcorder in places subject to high temperatures (like the inside of a car parked under direct sunlight), or
high humidity.
Do not use the camcorder near strong electromagnetic fields
such as above TVs or near plasma TVs.
Do not use the camcorder’s Wi-Fi functions inside hospitals,
medical clinics or onboard aircraft. In addition, do not use
them near medical equipment or sensitive electronic devices
as it may affect their performance. In the case of pacemakers,
keep the camcorder at least 22 cm (8.7 in.) away from the
device.
The camcorder’s Wi-Fi functions may be subject to interference from devices such as cordless phones and microwave
ovens. Keeping as much distance as possible from these
devices or using the camcorder’s Wi-Fi functions at a different
time of day may reduce such interference.
Do not point the lens at strong light sources. Do not leave the
camcorder pointed at a bright subject.
Do not use or store the camcorder in dusty or sandy places.
The camcorder is not waterproof – avoid also water, mud or
salt. If any of the above should get into the camcorder it may
damage the camcorder and/or the lens.
C
Y
P

227
Do’s and Don’ts
• Be careful of heat generated by lighting equipment.
• Do not disassemble the camcorder. If the camcorder does not
function properly, consult qualified service personnel.
• Handle the camcorder with care. Do not subject the camcorder to shocks or vibration as this may cause damage.
• When mounting the camcorder on a tripod, make sure that the
tripod’s fastening screw is shorter than 5.5 mm (0.2 in.). Using
other tripods may damage the camcorder.

• When recording movies, try to get a calm, stable picture.
Excessive camcorder movement while shooting can result in
jittery scenes. In extreme cases, the playback of such scenes
may result in visually induced motion sickness. If you experience such a reaction, stop the playback immediately and take
a rest break as necessary.
C
■ Long-Term Storage
If you do not intend to use the camcorder for a long time, store it
in a place free of dust, in low humidity, and at temperatures not
higher than 30 °C (86 °F).
228
Do’s and Don’ts
Battery Pack
DANGER!
Treat the battery pack with care.
• Keep it away from fire (or it might explode).
• Do not expose the battery pack to temperature higher than
60 °C (140 °F). Do not leave it near a heater or inside a car
in hot weather.
• Do not try to disassemble or modify it.
• Do not drop it or subject it to shocks.
• Do not get it wet.
Y
P
O
• Dirty terminals may cause a poor contact between the battery
pack and the camcorder or battery charger. Wipe the terminals with a soft cloth.
C
■ Long-Term Storage
• Store battery packs in a dry place at temperatures no higher
than 30 °C (86 °F).
• To extend the battery life of the battery pack, discharge it
completely before storing it.
• Charge and discharge all your battery packs fully at least once
a year.
229
Do’s and Don’ts
Memory Card
• We recommend backing up the recordings on the memory
card onto your computer. Data may be corrupted or lost due
to memory card defects or exposure to static electricity.
Canon shall not be liable for lost or corrupted data.
• Do not touch or expose the terminals to dust or dirt.
• Do not use memory cards in places subject to strong magnetic fields.
• Do not leave memory cards in places subject to high humidity
and high temperature.
• Do not disassemble, bend, drop, or subject memory cards to
shocks and do not expose them to water.
• Check the direction before inserting the memory card. Forcing
a memory card into the slot if it is not correctly oriented may
damage the memory card or the camcorder.
• Do not attach any labels or stickers on the memory card.
• When you delete movies or initialize the memory card, only the
file allocation table is altered and stored data is not physically
erased. When you dispose of the memory card or give either
to another person, initialize the memory card using the [Complete Initialization] option (A 42). Fill it up with unimportant
recordings, and then initialize it again using the same option.
This makes recovering the original recordings very difficult.
